Location of artist Ben Eine's alphabet graffiti street
Location: Middlesex Street, Aldgate
Description: This is where uber-cool graffiti artist 'Ben Eine's' latest installation is - he's coerced the whole street into having their grim metal shutters to be part of his street alphabet.
Real name Ben Flynn, he was born on 23 August 1970 and has become a prolific street artist based in London.
He has also taken his lettering to the streets of Paris, Stockholm, Hastings and Newcastle upon Tyne.
Prior to becoming involved in commercial graffiti, Eine was a very famous and highly credible writer in the underground London graffiti scene.
